NYX Concealer in a Jar
I have had awful luck with concealers, I am never able to find the perfect shade. Also depending on the weather and the sun, everyone’s skin color changes few months, so any one concealer does not guarantee concealment all year around. So taking inspiration from Mickey contractor’s duo concealer I got the NYX concealer in a jar in orange and yellow (Rs 475 each). It’s not the exact dupe, much light in color but in my opinion, works just fine. Also it’s not limited edition and the quantity in the jar is much more it seems. I read online it’s also a great dupe for the MAC Studio finish concealer.
As Stated on NYX Website
Provides natural & lasting coverage of discolorations & imperfections without looking caked-on or clumpy. Super concentrated so just a little will do the job.
For smiles all around, make smallest imperfections disappear! NYX Concealer Jar provides natural and long lasting coverage for any skin types. NYX Concealer Jar is perfect for large coverage for especially oily and combo skin. Also used as blender.
Net WT. 0.25oz (7g)
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Mineral Oil, BHT, Microcrystalline Wax, Nylon-66, Octyldodecyl Myristate, Silica, Butylparaden, Fragrance, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Ceresin, Dipentaerythrityl Hexahydroxystearate/ Hexarosinate, Polyethylene, Sorbitan Sequioleate, Tocopheryl Acetate. MAY CONTAIN: Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Chromium Oxide Greens, Ultramarines.
The concealer comes in an array of colors, ranging from light flesh toned colors to dark colors, and lavender, yellow, orange and green for particular problem areas as correctors.
The consistency is not as creamy as the Mac duo one, but its decent creamy and will provide medium to full coverage. I was never much of a concealer person as I previously did not have too dark circles, but this just completely changed my mind. You start by applying orange with a concealer brush (or even a small flat eyeshadow brush might do the trick). The orange by itself might work for many of you, as it camouflages the green under our Indian skin tone. After that if you need it, you can pat the yellow concealers lightly and blend it to match your skin tone. I think after just 2-3 tries, anyone can figure out the right amount of each concealer to use. Otherwise another method would be to take an empty container and mix the two colors to achieve your perfect shade and keep it for daily use.
Swatch with two colors blended on the top (this is just my first try), orange and yellow :
To sum it up-
Pros of NYX Concealer in a Jar
-Easy to achieve your perfect shade.
-Good quantity, will probably last a year.
-The formula is creamy but not very runny nor very hard.
-Can be used all year around, even if your skin tone changes.
Cons of NYX Concealer in a Jar
-Needs a good brush.
-Need moisturizer before applying under the circles for perfect coverage.
-Does not have a wand( which is good for me since I actually find the wand unhygienic at times, since it can’t be washed after use).
I liked the concealers and it lives up to its good report. I can finally stop looking for the perfect concealer color. It can also be used to darken areas if you have light pigmentation on your skin. It all depends on the ratio of each color you use. I find it more hygienic than the wand since the wand tends to pick up color when you try to layer it on another color. For those who don’t own the duo concealer and want to experiment they can give this a try.

Wowwwww..I never knew about this product nikki!! AWesssssssomeee!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀
You are welcome! 🙂
It’s the same concept as the moisture cover concealer by Mickey Contractor.. Fantastic! Which brush do you use to apply concealer?
I am liking this concept. You can work as per the change in your skin color. I hope some other brands also come up with this kinda product. I have Oriflame concealer brush Rati!! And I really like it a lotttttttt!! :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:
how is the brush…like fluffy flay, synthetic, natural hair ?:)
er….it is a bit thick, and kind of flat..it resembles a lot like a foundation brush, just that it is smaller in size.. And it is not very stiff but works quite well in applying and blending the concealer…and I like its handle too.. Since, my dark circles are reduced somehow now, I have started using the garnier roll on concealer under my eyes..I simply dab the roll on over the dark circles and use the concealer brush to mix and blend them..it works pretty well!! 😀 😀 😀 😀
er…. its this one…Its not written to be a concealer brush..its Beauty Highlighter brush..donno what is that used for..But I use it as concealer brush and it works quite welll!!! 😀 😀
oh okay.. I have similar brush for Sigma. 😀 😀
Btw very funny question…do you get this urge to sneeze after you have done your full makeup? 😛 😛
Since two days I have been doing full makeup and I have been sneezing exactly after my makeup is done.. It’s so irritating :pissedoff: And then I sneeze in squeeky funny way do that I don’t mess up my eye makeup. :silly: :silly:
I have no idea what I am talking about bt it’s very irritating..oh I somehow want to sneeze after I have just applied my mascara…and then i sneeze and my mascara is all over.. 😐 😐 😐
😐 😐 Thats a weird development…I think its because of the change of season…you already have a sensitive nose and I think because of pollens and everything, you have become hyper sensitive to external things like makeup!! 😛 😛 ,…Take some vicks inhaler and inhale well before putting on the makeup!!
And I refuse to believe that poutmati can get allergic to makeup!! :smug: :suspense: :suspense: :suspense: :suspense: :suspense: :suspense: :suspense: !!!
No I am not allergic to makeup. :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: I think it’s the change of season only. But it’s so funny. First I want to sneeze and then I want to laugh and then I get tears in my eyes and then I do funny action of tilting my head back , pressing my nose and taking my tears in…dont ask. Since two days I have been doing this drama. :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:
😛 😛 😛 Take steammmmm..and let your wind pipe breathe properly!! 😀
rati same pinch..i sneeeze when i am brushing of the loose powder.. :Pdats the last step i do..usually.. 😛
Thank god I am not alone in this world sneezing after doing full makeup. 😛
n i tot dat i ws alone in the world..like dis. 😛 :handshake: :handshake: :handshake: :handshake: :handshake:
:)) i mostly sneeze when ive just applied mascara ..and my mascara gets messed up before it gets time to dry up …i thot i was allergic to mascara 😛
shanaiia, I don’t know what happens but it’s very funny..:P 😛 😛

Hey Nikki..!! 🙂 :)) :bravo: thats awesome review u have done and I find it very useful.. will definitely try it.. :yahoo:
I had seen this on cherryculture but was unsure of its effectiveness.. IMBB Rocks!! :yahoo: :happydance:
And on cherryculture its just 5$ i.e. roughly 250 Rupees 🙂 incase u r buying it with some other stuff it will prove to be cheaper.. :yahoo:
I know Shruti, but I had horrible experience buying stuff and having it mailed to India.
I rather buy few things in India than gamble with the postal system in India 🙁
this looks very good… and u have blended it well nikki 🙂 but it will take some practice before bringing out the correct color no…. it sounds fun like painting 🙂
fartu…………why do your friends go to exotic places from where they can bring all hi-fi cosmetics :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: ….if I were your friend and if i were going abroad……I would have bought you all hotel ka complimentary chotu motu shower gels, conditioners, and stinky shampoos that would not be enough for even 10 strands of your hair
Tragedy is JOMO only frnds go…me never been out of INdia…even once in my lifetime….bhwwwwwwwwwaaaaahhhhhh mujhe duniya dekhni hai :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep:
